alexander attended, they were all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is hoping it spills over to the next four years and both sides of the aisle make a move to be more social and more civil. and, hence, more productive. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz, starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome "the ed show" from new york. republicans are raising the white flag. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> the republican game of chicken is over. eric cantore proposes a three-month deal on the debt ceiling. some democrats are calling it a trap. i'll ask dnc chairwoman debbie w
the ball. tonight, my message to senator harry reid. plus the american people are getting ripped off by a congress that just isn't working. congressman rick nolan, there 30 years ago. he is back now and he can't believe the difference. he is wondering, are we getting paid for this? >>> is it really an admission of guilt if you don't show any remorse? >> it did not even feel wrong? >> no. it's scary. >> did you feel bad about it? >> no. even scarier. >> psychologist dr. jeffrey gardere on lance armstrong's bizarre performance last night. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. republicans surrendered today in one of his biggest fights. president obama warned republicans about taking the debt ceiling hostage. it looks like they heard the message. >> the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. and they better choose quickly because time is rung short. >> republicans made their choice during a gop retreat in williamsburg, virginia. house majority le
, their leader, harry reid, had some kind things to say about the tactic. >> the filibuster serves as a check on power and preserves our limited government. right now the only check on president bush is the democrats' ability to voice their concern in this body, the senate. if the republicans roll back our rights in this chamber, there will be no check on power. the radical right wing will be free to pursue anything they want. >> now the shoe is on the other foot. i asked larry crane to discuss the double standard. 700,000 workers and many industries including media and telephone data services and health care. but that's just his day job. larry co hen is also a leader of the democracy initiative, a coalition as progressive and varied as the naacp, common cause, the sierra club, greenpeace, jobs with justice and the afl-cio. along with an affiliated campaign called fix the senate now, they are working hard to change the filibuster rules. take a look at their ad. >> as climate change threatens the world we leave to our children and good u.s. jobs move overseas, time in the senate has expired, a
to pass. harry reid said something that is discouraging today bub the president seems he's going to try to shoot the moon here, but not with a gun. >> he does, and i think we look at what the vice president said, some of the options some of these 19 possibilities for executive action to take on gun control. you know, we talked about them before, but some could be new limits on guns imported from overseas reminiscent of what george h.w. bush did. health and mental records. these powers are within the presidency, also to put somebody standard head of the a.t.f., and a lot of funding for the a.t.f., which is a lagging agency. they'll be charged with enforcing these gun laws. by strengthening the a.t.f., he is going to be doing some strengthening. >> cenk: when you block over countries from importing more guns here, it helps the n.r.a., because they represent american gun manufacturers, gives them a bigger monopoly. the check on mental health, if that's the only thing they do, that was an n.r.a. proposal, too. it's not nearly good enough. that's not the only thing they are proposing, and i
democrats. one of them happens to be harry reid. you know the man who the president would be reliant upon to get something significant through the senate -- >> 1994 and 2004 he has a b rating from the nra. that is higher than almost anyone. this amazing fact. he has received more money from the nra than any senate democrat. when it comes to harry reid and the nra it is a close relationship. >> kind of a love affair. he appeared with wayne lappier in 2010. he is a guy who says i am going to go with my party. so will he really oppose the president on gun issues? >> he is going to try to quarterback what he can. at the end of the day harry reid is a very practical politician. he said i will do what i can to move this forward and everything is on the table. here is the real deal. the part about pragmatism. in 2014 there are a half dozen democrats who don't need an assault weapons ban attack. states like arkansas, louisiana, montana. that is all going to play into factors. it will be interesting to see whether the tide has turned. some polls show at least on some options 89% of republicans sup
in the world. >> but as we talk what's up with harry reid? he does seem to be backing away from the strong reform that you propose. i brought a story from talkingpointsmemo.com. senate majority leader harry reid is voicing support for a set of changes to the current filibuster rules that would fall far short of the more sweeping proposals from people like mr. cohen. what's he -- what's up? >> well, i think part of what's up is he's got four or five mocrats, many of them senior, in his own party who don't want to see this. and they're in fact at this moment trying to make their own deal with people like john mccain for next to nothing from our point of view. you wouldn't see any of those four changes that we're pushing for. and i think he is reluctant unfortunately, to go ahead with the overwhelming majority of democrats that he has. he's got 51 democrats -- >> already? >> -- who will support senate resolution 4. and we need the american people to call in to senator reid and say,let's take a stand. let's bring democracy to the u.s. senate." >> the polls suggest that the majority of american
on the toughest gun laws in the nation, but in congress senate sxwrort leader harry reid pours cold water on an assault weapons ban unless the house acts first. >> let's be realistic. in the senate we're going to do what we think will get through the house, and i don't think going through these eyeragses to say we've done something. >> mother of ben wheeler tells rachel maddow that action on guns should trump politics. >> it's not just republican, democrat -- >> no, no. >> independent. that is the thing that is just blowing my mind that i feel like it's really not about your party. >> it's not. it's not. >> i really feel like it's about our children. >>> coming clean. disgraced pro cyclist lance armstrong confesses to oprah winfrey he used performance enhancing drugs to win the tour de france. >> we were mesmerized and riveted by some of his answers. >> could he face criminal charges? >>> critical vote. chuck schumer says he will back chuck hagel as defense secretary. secretary of state hillary clinton with a long-time ally, liberia's president ellen johnson surleaf. >> it's important to
country. >> john: an assault weapons ban that senate majority leader harry reid said likely wouldn't pass the house. you see the president wants you to keep trying, harry. the american people do too. while you're at it, maybe congress could follow new york state's lead. because today governor andrew cuomo signed into law the toughest package of gun measures in the nation. the new law expands the state's assault weapons ban. requires background checks to buy ammunition. increase penalties for multiple gun crimes. creates a statewide gun registration database and requires mental health professionals to report patients they believe are likely to harm themselves or others. nowhere in the list do you hear about feds coming to your house to take away your form of entertainment. but as new york congressman steve israel said today more federal and state actions are needed too. >> if those weapons can permeate new york's borders, it makes it tougher. >> john: for more, i'm now joined by a key figure in the guns debate, virginia democratic congressman bobby scott is the ranking member of the crime
democrats -- >> eric: harry reid -- >> dana: so why are you blaming the house republicans? >> bob: they voted against it. >> andrea: i have respect for colin powell, but he also said this. asked about hillary clinton and benghazi he said he didn't believe it's a blot on her record. how can he say this when there is four dead americans. she said i take responsibilit responsibility. kim i don't know why he went on a limb. i have respect for his service and served well and rewarded with tremendous opportunities in the bush administration. this makes no sense. >> bob: he was secretary of state and understands things like this happen. this is not the secretary of state's final responsibility. >> don't take credit for? >> bob: that night was not her responsibility. >> she said it was her responsibility. >> bob: she said i'm responsible for it but is he is responsible to make decision about security? >> andrea: so it's not hillary clinton's or susan rice's or president obama. nobody's? >> kimberly: the ambassador. >> bob: i said she said it was her responsibility. >> dana: the point is -
? if so, you are probably over 30. plus, i'm sending a letter to senate majority leader harry reid on what washington can do for children. and nerdland is in washington. >>> good morning, i'm melissa harris-perry. this morning, we are live in washington, d.c. as preparations are under way for the second inauguration of president barack obama. and while the public ceremony and celebration will take place on monday, the official swearing in as mandated by the constitution will occur tomorrow morning. chief justice john roberts will swear in the president in a brief ceremony at the white house just before noon and msnbc will bring it to you live tomorrow. president obama will retake the oath with a 52% approval rating according to the latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. after the last inauguration, the economy is not if a freefall, and universal health care is not a political platform, and the united states is not bogged down in multiple international wars, and the girls have a dog. look, president obama is go gin to enter his new term with with a new ad jen da already under a bright
in the senate where you have harry reid, the senate majority leader and other democrats calling for a slowdown, not a speed-up as relates to gun control. >> megyn: harry reid has been a pig pbig proponent of gun rig and doesn't necessarily appear on team obama on this issue. nor do other democrats. this is a strange issue in that it's not d versus r. it's gun rights groups versus gun control groups. i don't know that you can put harry reid in the gun rights group camp can you? >> well, this is really, when you get down to it. >> megyn: control i should say. >> a population density question. if you represent a place with a lot of people, if you represent a city, you are much more likely to be in favor of gun control. and if you represent the country, if you represent the country folks, you are much more likely to be in favor of gun rights. we have a big your began versus rural split on that, and harry reid's state have a lot of pistol-packing folks, a lot of rugged individualists out in nevada and that's true across the democrats in the west, appalachia, joe manchin, that's the deal, this is a
moving forward with gun control measures but at the federal level it seems like a tough sell. harry reid doubts such a measure to ban assault weapons would get through the house. what does that mean for national gun control laws? are we at a stalemate? >> i don't believe we are. it comes down to what are we going to be able to get bipartisan support for in the congress? and there are three things that i believe are possible to get across the aisle support. my major focus has been since january 8th on mental health services and awareness and i'll be dropping a bill today that will move in that direction called the mental health first aid act so that's one thing that i believe is possible. there seems to be some cross unanimity across the aisle on mental health services and my bill will hopefully be one of the first steps in that direction. >> you met with vice president biden as part of a task force convened by the president. the vice president was supposed to deliver his recommendations today to the president, but he delayed that. why the holdup? >> i'm not sure i could tell you why the
there's news that senate majority leader harry reid wants a smaller reform. but my next guest is urging him go big. joining me now, senator jeff merkley, democrat senator from oregon, who's leading the charge for filibuster reform. thanks for your time tonight. >> it's wonderful to be with you. >> there have been 386 republican-led filibusters since 2007 according to harry reid. i mean, it is amazing the kind of things that have been blocked by a minority just using filibusters. >> absolutely. jobs, closing oil loopholes. the dream act. the disclose act to get rid of secrecy in campaign donations. a lot more beyond. then in addition the bills that never get to the senate floor because those on the floor are getting filibustered. >> senator john cornyn of texas said on the filibuster fight, he said quote, the history of this has been that people get up to the edge of the abyss and they look into the abyss and they pull back because today' minority can become the majority. what's your reaction to that statement by senator cornyn? >> my reaction is anything i'm backing is something i'm com
've made harry reid, we have, not democrats, we've made harry reid the majority leader again. we just got to start playing smafrter. >> a better candidate than sharon engel. his polls were terrible. joe, let me say something else. i worked for reagan, okay. reagan was a big tent guy. he was inclusive. in his administration we had moderate republicans, we had conservative republicans, we had supply siders like myself, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. can we go back to reagan's model, can we open up the party a little bit. you know what i'm thinking about particularly. this whole issue about immigration, latino, african-americans, young people, joe the whole party is missing a whole demonstrato graphic in this country? >> no doubt about it. one of my biggest criticisms about mitt romney over the past couple of years i never really thought he understood freeman or thatcher or reagan because if you do get it, if you understand what you understand at your gut level, what i understand and many other conservatives, free market conservatives get, that is that what we believe in conservatism appli
and a number of pro gun democrats including the senate majority leader harry reid who does not seem enthusiastic at the start of the debate right now. realistically, what do you think the most is that we can get out of this in terms of gun control laws? >> not that much. the orders are incremental and they will make some difference. they are not going to solve the problem as it is diagnosed. i don't see action in the congress. i wouldn't be surprised about a fig leaf measure and congress wants to show they did something that is toothless. i think that might be a realistic option. i don't think you will see very much in the way of the package the president proposed unless public opinion does seem to be moving a little bit. after the other big shootings, you don't see sentiment in favor of gun control. if the president wants to keep driving this and followed through more than i and other people predicted he would, keep the public pressure off now and mayor bloomberg is determined to do that. that's in the cover story. maybe then you get real pressure on the members and see action. rig
and nevada. the home state of the senate democratic leader harry reid who it is significant today basically said the president's proposals were today in his words thoughtful but harry reid did not promise any dramatic action on all of this. a sign that democrats on the hill still may be skiddish in some of these swing states that it could back fire on them if they push too hard on gun control. >> getting reaction from the gun lobby. what are we hearing from. >> they the nra said they think this was an assault on firearms by the president. they got personal today. they put out an ad that basically talked about the president's own daughters and the security they have at their school and suggested in their words the president was an elitist hypocrite. take a listen. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? why see skeptical about putting armed security in their schools when they have armed guards at their school. jay carney immediately said this was completely out of bounds. he put out a statement most americans believe a president's childrens should not be used as pawns in the p
democrats. one happens to be the top democrat in the senate, harry reid. john avlon is looking into the majority leader's ties with the nra. the man the president would be relying upon to get something significant in terms of gun laws. he does pretty well with the nra. >> here is the deal about harry reid and guns. he opposed the assault weapons ban not once but twice in 1994 and 2004. he has a "b" rating from the nra. that's higher than ten other democrats. he has received money from the nra than any other senate member. >> a little love affair. he even appeared with wayne la pierre in 2010. but, he is a guy who says, you know, i'm gonna go with my party and go with the democratic party line. will he really oppose the president on gun issues? >> he is not going to oppose the president. he is going to try to quarterback ter what he can. he is going to do what he can to move the ball forward. everything is on the table. here is the real deal. part of the pragmatism is a look at the election. arkansas, louisiana, month tan na, north carolina, south dakota. it will be interesting
put squarely on the democratically controlled senate. what has harry reid's reaction to this been? he is a pro gun senator. >> reporter: there are probably at least a dozen democrats who have very high scores when the nra does it's review of voting. so there are a lot of democrats in the senate who are strong gun advocates and have constituents who believe in that. so harry reid is one of those people who has said an assault weapons ban will not pass the house so it is not likely the to be something the senate should even deal with should it become law. he made that statement on his local statement in his home state. that's a sign so he will have to be looking at what is really doable in terms of bringing legislation forward. so that gives me the sense at least right now that an assault weapons ban is something that at least democrats are really anxious to pursue. >> kelley or donnell. we want to bring in our political power panel for this hour. msnbc analyst karen funny, also a columnist for the kill and republican strategist hogan gibley. i want to start out with this op-ed that cam
the lawmakers and harry reid of nevada made sure it got in to have a provision in there saying patients don't have to answer if they are asked by their doctor whether they have a eun. protected thanks to the nra. why is the nra guy so surprised that they may be asking? >> bill: answer me this megyn. >> okay. >> bill: the president makes a point in his presentation about guns to mention mental health people all right? he is going to direct them. is he going to give them authority in this area. >> that they may. >> bill: that they may. >> clarifying his law doesn't prohibit. clarifying that indeed they may. >> bill: that's a little bit of spin. >> they have been doing it, bill. they have been doing it. if you are a physician and somebody comes into your office with six gunshot wounds you have a right to ask about the gun. i saw the president and he is not a guy ha ad-libs a lot. this is on the tell prompter specifically point out that he is giving the authority to school officials,mental health officials. to get into this area. and i think that just raises red flag going all right. now what?
proposals that pass the senate. well, what did harry reid say last weekend about voting on any bills having to do with gun legislation? they are not going to vote on anything unless they know it can pass the house. here we are, stalemate. >> exactly. >> back to you, no, over to you. neither one of them -- and this is what makes the nra's bizarre decision that they did today, the risk -- right now, harry re reid's the best friend they've got, and if they figure out a way to alienate senate democrats who have carried their water before with the stunt they pulled today with this bizarre web ad, they are going to live to regret it long term. >> one other thing about the nra, wayne lapierre said in part, barack obama, joe biden and their gun ban allies want to bully you, strip you of your second amendment freedoms. i warned you that day is coming, now it's here. then a call for greater membership, which is exactly what's happening. nia malika, the battle is now joined, not a battle either side wanted to engage in during the presidential campaign. we just went through a two-year campaign, where e
're going to do. i will be calling harry reid's office tomorrow to ask and to change the filibuster rule. we have to make the move. i agree. i understand ipoem. -- the poem. it was beautiful. >> you are on. welcome. caller: i just want to comment that i find it very revealing that secretary clinton is trying to avoid the benghazi scandal and had on new glasses but not answered one question about how many americans were killed in benghazi. host: i am so incredibly happy right now and so grateful for all that obama has laid out for his second term. we are following tweets. you are welcome to join the conversation. >> i really was and pressed by the whole inauguration. i was able to watch the first one. probably early this morning. i thought it was really professional. the politicians, i wish they would get together like that when it is time to change lolls and improve the stability of this country. i was impressed overall, especially with kelly clarkson and the beyonce. they were impressive with their music. i listened to them sparingly no when they have a couple of hits. i wish to put up more
something rather strong about harry reid. we assume that kind of language was not used in the white house this morning, but can they really get along and do what needs to get done? >> there is -- there are pockets of enmity that are quite well-known. what's really wonderful about washington, and this day is going to be full of this, is that you can have members, particularly on the senate floor, that can just bash each other. john has had a bird's-eye view of this. during the day with key issues of state at risk, and at the end of the day they can go off to the moncle and have a drink or a steak and so -- >> although a lot less than used to take place. >> that's true. >> jill biden, the vice president's wife, the second lady of the united states, begins her way down to the podium. >> i think there is more partisanship about to break out. >> call it bipartisanship. >> maybe i'm caught up in the spirit of the day. >> explain. >> i'll explain. >> and where do you see that? >> i have some circumstantial evidence. look at the fiscal cliff vote and look at the sandy vote. a microcosm. what you'
at least that harry reid is not going to make his democrats who are up in 2014 walk the plank on a tough gun vote. so the house guys are saying look, we'll take it up when reid passes it knowing full well there's a small chance that larry reedye harry reid is going to pass a robust bill. if you saw some of the comments this past week from senators like max baucus, mary landrieu, mark begich who are up next year, you see why a lot of the house republicans are sort of smiling and saying we'll take it up when it comes over from the senate, wink, wink. >> gene, i guess it's going to be quite a while before i download profiles of courage volume 2 from the united states senate? >> i think it's going to be a while. look, it's been a month since newtown. and i think it's -- i think you make the case, it's unconscionable to do nothing, right, until the next newtown. i think there's a resonance out in the country. i think people get that this is something we really need to address and get it on an emotional level. but no, you're not going to be reading the updated profiles in courage out of the se
harry reid, the head of the democratic party in the senate, is nervous about submitting it to the congress because he figures it won't pass the house. >> two points. one, i think the poll -- and the irony here is a lot of the stuff you just showed the nra was behind. they didn't have a problem with -- >> that's right. >> -- the gun show checks -- >> in the days of yesteryear. >> in the days of yesteryear and i think they need to get back to that. >> you know the politics. why this they gone to this rejecti rejectionist? >> i'll be the washington cynic and the fact is it's fund raising and membership. and you look -- >> is it gun sales? >> absolutely gun sales, am mission, from ammunition to guns. take that off the table. you still have the slaughter of 20 innocents here. that's what is driving the american people. that's the focus of our community right now is if this can happen in newtown, massachusetts, it's certainly happens in chicago -- >> respond to what the governor said about the suburban governors who aren't right wingers. if you were still party chair, what lan
leader harry reid recently told a local pbs station in nevada. "let's be realistic," he said. "in the senate we're going to do what we think can get through the house, and i'm not going to go through a bunch of gyrations just to say that we've done something. if we're really legislators, the purpose of it is to pass legislation." senator reid did not show the same kind of hesitation with another moral issue, relief for superstorm sandy. the relief package was passed by the senate even though house speaker john boehner hadn't brought it up for a vote. in fact, the senate passage helped to put pressure on the house. sandy relief passed in the house with a minority of republican votes and almost every democrat. speaker boehner would not have brought the bill to the floor if it hadn't already been passed in the senate. there was similar pressure with the fiscal cliff deal. it passed in the senate first. then boehner was forced to bring it to the floor for a vote and the house, even though only a minority of republicans supported it. today senator majority leader harry reid seemed to c
are the guys who have to lead. they have got to get nancy pelosi and harry reid to bring along democrats, and we've -- >> harry reid is tough on this. he's pretty pro gun. >> well, he's going to have to listen to his constituents. i think he will. i think you're going to find in all of these places, when i talk to people around the country, there's just enough is enough. you see people who have been big gun rights advocates all of a sudden saying, well, we can't keep doing this. >> mr. mayor, thank you. >> you're welcome. thank you for having me. >> coming up, manti te'o's, a twitter war for the record books and for the ridiculist. ♪ you know my heart burns for you... ♪ i'm up next, but now i'm singing the heartburn blues. hold on, prilosec isn't for fast relief. cue up alka-seltzer. it stops heartburn fast. ♪ oh what a relief it is! >>> time now for the ridiculist. tonight, we're adding the twitter war between donald trump and deadspin. this week, deadspin broke the story about the notre dame linebacker who had a fake girlfriend, and trump was apparently imp pressed. he tweeted th
or in fact have harry reid or nancy pelosi come out and attack them all the time if you're trying to get something done that demands an agreement with the other side. bob? >> first of all, charlie, one thing you have to is president obama does not control harry reid or nancy pelosi they are more than anxious -- >> despite how he might wish. >> yeah, in willing to come out and attack republicans on their own spontaneously and with sincere conviction. >> rose: do you think that's helpful? >> no, i think it doesn't work and i think he's got a real problem with that. but i think of very interesting question here is what are his frustrations in the job and it's alwa harto get goodata on that but i think one of his frustrations is in the first term he inherited that financial crisis and he did a good job. we now have an economy not just on the verge of stability but on the verge of takeoff and you never get credit as president for what you kept from happening which would have been a depression and he knows he spent so much energy on that sand he knows in the midst ofit he got health care refor
